The students have designed and created covers for their How To books. Some students will add a few more details to their stories this week. Other students are adding an illustration or two to their books. It is exciting to watch the final products come together. All of the children have been working hard on their projects, so they should be proud of their efforts.
Stay tuned for some photos of the final products in the coming weeks!
This week, the students started the revising process. We discussed how revising means "looking again" at a piece of writing. We looked for interesting introductions, clear steps, and meaningful conclusions. Some students added details and some students did some more research to improve their pieces.

The students have worked diligently this week to complete the drafts of their How To stories. The students have included an introduction, a body with specific steps, and a conclusion into their stories. We have discussed the importance of including time-order words into our pieces, too. Next week, we will dig into revising!
